Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host allows arbitrary code execution.


The x86 JIT compiler included with the version of the .NET Framework installed on the remote host incorrectly compiles certain types of function calls.

An attacker may be able to leverage this vulnerability to run arbitrary code on the affected system under either of the following scenarios :

- Tricking a user on the affected host into viewing a specially crafted web page using a web browser that can run XAML Browser Applications (XBAPs).

- Uploading a malicious ASP.NET application to be hosted on the affected host.

- Bypassing Code Access Security (CAS) restrictions in a Windows .NET application.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for the .NET Framework on Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7, and 2008 R2.
